The Journal of Ephemeral Inspiration

The Journal of Ephemeral Inspiration promises a neverending spew of pointless minutae, brilliant yet useless ideas, troublingly cruel commentary and emphatic musings on whatever shiny object happens to catch our collective eye. Always remember, hate the game, not the playa.

Bad Art: Jesus Out To Lunch

Skree-ations hits another one out of the Bad Art park. You've got until August 10 to claim "Jesus Out To Lunch" as your own, and we'd be lying if we told you we weren't a little tempted ourselves.

The abstract LeRoy Neiman-esque background, the jaunty angles of Christ's "out to lunch" sign and thorny crown... the effect is a wry insight that while Jesus died for your sins, the last temptation of Christ was a little mid-crucifixion gnosh. You can almost hear the comic "wah-wah-waaah..." music cue and canned studio audience laughter when a distraught Mary Mag'dalene shows up to mourn at the feet of her slain savior, only to find this head-scratcher. Benny Hill could have done no better.

$30 plus $15 shipping could make us the envy of our artsy-fartsy and Christian fundamentalist neighbors alike. It's the perfect bridge to span the yawning chasm that is the American political landscape. God bless you , Skree. God bless you real hard.
